We have been fixing 2001 Ford Excursion with 7.3l Powerstroke and now it's time to get it running again. Problem is that it won't start, starter turns engine ok and white smoke comes out from exhaust pipe but it doesn't start.
Sometimes while starting, engine just stops and gets jammed, after turning engine by hand a little bit and waiting for couple of minutes it turns again, also diesel fuel drops out from between connection of exhaust header and exhaust pipe leading to turbo. So i think we have fuel reaching injectors, but they migth not be working correctly?
We have chanced these parts: High pressure oil pump, fuel injectors, bigger turbo, water pump, starter, some sensors, filters, glow plugs. All other parts were cleaned prior to installing also cylinder heads were machined with new valves etc.
All wiring harness from engine compartment was removed for this rebuilt if something there has gone wrong could it be causing this problem?
So if anyone has and idea that might be useful please write, cause we are running out of ideas
Im not sure if i rememberd to write down all information but i will update if necessery.
